Leda Kyriakou is a graduate of the Department of Architecture, University of Thessaly (2016), and of the postgraduate program ‘Research in Architecture: Architectural Design - Space - Culture’, of the National Technical University of Athens. On the research project of the undergraduate studies she focused on the use of architecture as a means of control and construction of identities, and subsequently the thesis of the postgraduate program was based on the subject ’The echo of colonialism in the metropolis: the construction of the ‘internal enemy’ in the banlieues of Paris’ (supervisor professor Stavros Stavrides). The subjects have been presented to undergraduate students and to the seminar of the Greek Association of Architects, ’Approaching space by the way of Maria Mantzari’ (March 2019).
